Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is reportedly making progress but not expected to practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: It's getting harder and harder for fantasy owners to hold onto Jackson, who made an early exit in Week 2 and hasn't played since. With that said, he should be able to return to game action within the next week or two given the fact the team seems close to declaring him ready to practice. It might take some time for him to get his conditioning back, but it is clear the offense needs him. He will likely be worth the wait once he does return and should still be considered a high-upside WR3 in fantasy.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor caught four passes for 42 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Agholor had one 100-yard game earlier this season but has been held to 50 yards or less in the other five games. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Agholor next week.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught five passes for 48 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Huddle Up: Goedert posted more yards this week than he did in his first four games and appeared to be a popular target in the passing game. His role in the passing game probably will change next week and may not be a great fantasy option.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught four passes for 54 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted nine times during the game.
Huddle Up: Ertz has been targeted at least seven times in every game this season and has been a reliable option for fantasy players. He should continue to be considered a No. 1 tight end in leagues next week.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught 10 passes for 76 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted 12 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Jeffery has caught three touchdowns in his four games this season and appears to be a favorite target for Carson Wentz. He will continue to be a focal point in the passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders caught three passes for 86 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He also rushed for six yards on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Sanders has been more involved in the passing game over the last few weeks and has posted at least 49 receiving yards in three of the last four games. He should be a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard rushed for 49 yards on 13 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Howard saw his three-game touchdown streak snapped this week but has received at least 10 carries in each of the last four games. He appears to be the top option in the running game for the Eagles but may only be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz went 26-for-40 for 306 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He also rushed for 23 yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: Wentz posted his first 300-yard game of the season against the Vikings and has thrown 12 touchdowns in six games this season. He will be facing a solid Dallas Cowboys defense next week but can still be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) has been dealing with a 'small tear' in his abdomen, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: The news helps explain why it has taken Jackson so long to return to action, but fantasy owners will want to remain patient. He is eyeing a Week 7 return and had a monster performance in Week 1 as the the main deep threat in the passing attack.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and has been ruled out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz probably are the only Eagles pass catchers that are must-start options in fantasy leagues with Jackson sidelined.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Jackson likely will miss another game, so fantasy players should keep him on the bench. Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz are the only Eagles pass catchers that are starting fantasy options at this point.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is likely out again in Week 6, but he's hoping to return for Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Alshon Jeffery is really the only receiver that pops in D-Jax's absence. He's a low-end WR2 in PPR formats against a tough Minnesota Vikings matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) remains out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 9. Head coach Doug Pederson said they'd try to get Jackson to begin outdoor rehab off to the side today.
Huddle Up: Carson Wentz has really felt D-Jax's absence as he has thrown for 189 and 160 yards the last two weeks. He has still thrown 10 touchdowns to two picks this season. When D-Jax returns, it should improve his numbers even more. Alshon Jeffery remains a PPR WR2 in Jackson's stead.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard is trending toward getting the bulk of the carries in the backfield, according to comments made by head coach Doug Pederson. 'I think as we go, Jordan has been kind of the lead back the last couple of games, for sure. ... I think moving forward it's kind of going that way. I can't sit here and say that if Miles (Sanders) has the hot hand one day that (Howard) gets more touches, but that's kind of the trend,' Pederson said.
Huddle Up: Howard has amassed 177 total yards and four touchdowns on 31 touches over the last two games, while Sanders has been accumulated 126 yards and no scores on his 24 touches. The latter has significantly more upside but has struggled to commit to hitting the hole despite flashing in a big way as a receiver. Howard has a difficult matchup coming up in Week 6 versus the Minnesota Vikings, but he'll be in the running for low-end RB2 production in that one if he can push for 15 touches again.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery posted six receptions for 52 yards on a team-high eight targets in Week 5 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: It was Jeffery's first game out of three outings this season where he didn't find the end zone, but his catch total and yardage total were highs. It's a start. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues with 12 or more teams heading into Week 6 at Minnesota.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted five receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 5 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Believe it or not, and his fantasy owners know all too well, it was Ertz's first visit to the end zone in 2019 through five games. Hopefully it's the first of many. He'll try to add to his scoring totals in Week 6 at Minnesota.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed nine times for 15 yards in Week 5 against the New York Jets and he added four receptions for 49 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: This was the first time the rookie saw single-digit carries in a game. He has yet to score a touchdown in five games, and he has eclipsed 100 scrimmage yards just once. Sanders has a ton of potential, but as long as Jordan Howard is healthy that means the rookie's fantasy ceiling is rather limited.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 17-of-29 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 5 against the New York Jets while running for five yards.
Huddle Up: Wentz didn't do much for his fantasy owners, as the Eagles actually posted 14 of their 31 points thanks to the defense. You had to figure it was going to be a blowout, with not a lot of passing anyway. He faces a difficult matchup on the road in Week 6 in Minnesota.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) was ruled out for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Nelson Agholor was shut out in Week 4, but the team completed just 16 passes in the game. Agholor will be a flex consideration, but Alshon Jeffery will make a good WR2.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Considering the Eagles are playing the New York Jets, don't expect Jackson to play in Week 5. There doesn't seem to be any panic in Philadelphia, however, so owners should be at least somewhat optimistic he'll be back in Week 6.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: D-Jax would have a great matchup if he's able to return this week against the New York Jets. At this rate, though, that looks highly questionable. Keep tabs on him the next couple of days.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor was targeted just once and did not have a reception against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: With Jeffery and Goedert back, Agholor was relegated to afterthought status on Thursday night. With DeSean Jackson likely to return in Week 5, Agholor's run as a fantasy asset may have already run its course.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught two balls for 16 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 4 win over the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Goedert's return probably helped the running game more than anything, but he made the most of his chances with an easy TD catch. He's not worth playing at this point, but he could be worth carrying if you have a large reserve roster.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Jeffery was targeted a team-high nine times but a combination of tight coverage from Kevin King and off-target throws from Carson Wentz resulted in just three catches. He'll now get a little extra time to get healthy and has weekly WR3 value with some upside.

Posted 9/27/2019 4:42 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught seven passes for 65 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Ertz has been steady but unspectacular this year, catching at least four passes and gaining between 50 and 75 yards in all four games this season. After scoring eight times in each of the last two seasons, however, Ertz has yet to record a TD in 2019. Still, he remains an integral part of Philly's passing game and should be locked into fantasy lineups as a TE1.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders gained 72 yards on 11 carries in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: While Sanders averaged an impressive 6.5 yards per carry, he took a backseat to Jordan Howard, getting outgained 115 to 72 and outscored three to zero. So despite accounting for the team's two biggest plays -- a 67-yard kickoff return that jump-started the team and a 30-yard run -- Sanders remains a fringe weekly option in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard ran 15 times for 87 yards and two TDs against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4. He also caught three passes for 28 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Green Bay had no answers for Philly's running game, which came in averaging just 3.6 yards per carry, and Howard seemed to be into the secondary before he was getting contacted on many plays. Long a minus as a receiver, Howard was also the only Eagles RB to catch a pass, including a 20-yard TD. Despite his big night, Howard's continued timeshare with Miles Sanders limits his overall upside.
